In 1857, Brahms wrote to his friend Joseph Joachim about his first Piano Concerto, saying, “ “I have no judgment about this piece anymore, nor any control over it.” The piece is one that probably has more emotional backstory than any other of Brahms' works. It emerged out of Brahms' complicated friendship with Robert and Clara Schumann, and out of the massive expectations that had been placed upon him. We'll talk all about this massive work, Brahms' youth, and much, much more! Thanks for listening!
